As a company policy, we require all crew to hold a valid WorkCover NSW security clearance before starting with us.

A security clearance entitles the licence holder, to handle explosives and/or security sensitive dangerous substances without supervision subject to the licensee working under the direction and control of a person licensed to be in possession of explosives and/or security sensitive dangerous substances. An security clearance does not authorise the holder to purchase or possess explosives and/or dangerous goods in their own right.
